More Than Just an AFO Part 1: Mechanics, Function, and Common Myths

Presented by Andrea Ecsedy, PT, DPT, NCS

More Than Just an AFO Part 1: Mechanics, Function, and Common Myths

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.
Video Runtime: 42 Minutes; Learning Assessment Time: 21 Minutes

This course will cover normal gait mechanics specific to the ankle. It will include the critical events and functional tasks essential for each phase of gait, as well as how the ankle affects the joints further up the kinetic chain. There will be in-depth discussion and examples of how manipulating the ankle can have a direct effect on proximal joints and biomechanical alignment. Common myths about AFOs will be presented, as well as evidence showing why these are myths and not facts.

Balance Domains Part 1: Anticipatory, Reactive, & Limits of Stability

Presented by Andrea Ecsedy, PT, DPT, NCS

Balance Domains Part 1: Anticipatory, Reactive, & Limits of Stability

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.

This course series is a practical interpretation of balance research with real-world applications supporting current evidence. This lecture is Part one of a three-part series describing and applying the Domains Approach to balance. This approach addresses six global areas that cover the multi-factorial complexity of balance. Part 1 will cover: Limits of Stability (LOS), Anticipatory (APC), and Reactive Postural Control (RPC). Supporting evidence, standardized tests, treatment suggestions, and documentation examples will be presented that address each domain. This course series is a practical interpretation of the plethora of balance research with real-world applications of the balance constructs presented in current research.

Presented by Andrea Ecsedy, PT, DPT, NCS

Balance Domains Part 2: Sensory Organization & Dual Task Cost

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.

This course series is a practical interpretation of balance research with real-world applications supporting current evidence. This lecture is Part 2 of a three part series describing and applying the Domains Approach to balance. The importance of thoroughly understanding sensory organization and the impact of this domain are presented. Specific breakdown of how results from a modified Clinical Test of Sensory Integration and Balance (mCTSIB) would drive treatment planning are covered. How to test for attention allocation deficits and dual task interference are presented. Suggestions for treatment strategies and documentation for deficits found in these areas will also be presented.
